Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I would discuss what your needs are, what English skills you want to learn. In the process of this, I would assess where you are with your English. We could then map out what we might work on in the time we have. The plan would be something about which we both agreed.

Proofreading

My focus in proofing is making certain that the writing expresses what the writer intends and responds to the question or issue posed. As a writing coach, I assist students with personal statements, editing/proofing comprehensive exams and dissertations, including correcting and verifying in-text citations and references.

Psychology

Having tutored and assisted psychology students as a writing coach, I have become more familiar with the field, its theorists, and theories. I have also my own reading experience to draw upon. I am fascinated by this subject and enjoy engaging with students on its various topics.

Reading

Reading is an essential skill that can be mastered by acquiring the skills that improve comprehension and meaning. Questioning, monitoring comprehension, applying background knowledge, making connections to the text, and identifying the main idea are strategies that, once learned, will increase the student's confidence in her/himself as a reader.

Writing

Together we would assess previous written assignments and analyze what the problems are having. Rewriting exercises using previous essays can help in recognizing and correcting mistakes. This practice would be applied and developed as a new skill for current and future writing.
